Four3Forty Sports


The usual threesome is only two strong today as Host Trav was unable to attend the recording of the show. However, have no fear as Dan and Alan explain why Entropy was the root cause of Trav’s absence. The two of them then discuss the results of the $100,000 30 Days of Isolation Bet, whether the firing of the Vikings OC will be good for the team rest of season, a NBA trade that happened, but didn’t really happen, then actually happened and who was hurt by the Eagles upset win over the Rams Sunday night. Next they’ll cover, how it was that the Cowboys were shutout for the first time in 15 years, whether motivation is a big factor in sports and how to measure its effects and if the Utah Jazz are in trouble to make the playoffs this year. Finally, they try to sequester a bet worth making in the Vikings/Lions game and make their week 16 NFL picks.
